Shannon & The Clams, Ian Svenonius and more played 2017 Halloween Hop (pics)

Jonathan Toubin pulled out all the stops for his annual Halloween Hop which this year was at The Knockdown Center in Queens. Shannon & The Clams, playing their third Halloween show of the week, headlined and the night also saw main room performances by Ian Svenonius’s Escape-Ism, Kid Congo, Guantanamo Baywatch, Paint Fumes, and The Nude Party.

There was lots more going on too, with a second stage featuring covers sets by Wyldlife as The Dead Boys; Roya as The Gun Club; The Nude Party as The Seeds; Fiona Silver as Wanda Jackson; Saylavees as The B-52s; Chorizo as Wire; Toni Lynn, Leah Beth, and the gang as Girlschool; The Othermen as The New York Dolls; Matt Marando and The Davies as The Kinks; and the Danny Goldshtein Trio as “Bloody Holly.” Plus vintage cult films and lots more. Check out photos from The Haunted Hop in the gallery above.
